FARM & GARDEN PROGRAMS
Growing Gardens Membership UPDATE (Discontinued)
Growing Hope will no longer offer our Growing Garden Membership program to individual households and community gardens. Instead, we will focus our free garden resources on participants in our Home Vegetable Garden Program. For community gardens, we are still happy to provide fiscal agency and insurance coverage.
Many past Growing Gardens members look forward to free seeds and seedlings. Only Home Vegetable Garden households and alums will receive free seeds and seedlings, as we focus these resources to those who may have barriers to otherwise purchasing them. Others can shop at Growing Hope’s YpsiPlanti Garden Supply which offers a variety of veggie, fruit, and herb plants. Because of our continuing dedication to making gardening accessible, we are again offering 25% discount at YpsiPlanti to Bridge Card holders (i.e. SNAP or WIC families). We’ll also be starting a new frequent shopper rewards program.
While Growing Hope will not offer a full Seed Starting Squad program, we encourage people to purchase seed starting kits from YpsiPlanti Garden Supply and borrow from our stock of light stands for a small deposit. Everyone still has access to Growing Hope’s Lending Libraries (tools, light stands, canning supplies, and books).
Borrow Resources: tools, books and More!
We have a tool and book lending library to gardeners in our community. You can borrow the tools you need to get growing- from shovels to grow lights. Check out the list of books here, and our list of tools here. Items are available to be checked out at the Growing Hope Center.

Help grow communities.
Our mission of helping people improve their lives and communities through gardening and healthy food access can only be furthered with the financial support of people like you.
